The Twitter bitcoin hacking fiasco was designed to keep the Nick Cannon topic from continuing to explode
A couple of pretty crazy things are happening on Twitter right now for those out of the loop. First of all, a whole bunch of high profile people's accounts were hacked, such as Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, etc. saying to send them cryptocurrency and that they would send back double what was given to them because they were feeling generous. This happened around 4-5pm EST. It was a way for the hackers to dupe people into sending them bitcoin. Meanwhile, something much more crazy was going on, but I need to give some background info. Nick Cannon recently made very racist remarks about non-blacks. Here are just some of the things he said. Do yourself a favor and actually read these things. All of them. "They had to be savages," Cannon said before noting that he was referring to "Jewish people, white people, and Europeans." "So, therefore, the only way that they can act is evil. They have to rob, steal, rape, kill in order to survive," Cannon continued. "So then, these people that didn’t have what we have -- and when I say we, I speak of the melanated people -- they had to be savages … They’re acting as animals so they’re the ones that are actually closer to animals. They’re the ones that are actually the true savages." “The people that don’t have [melanin] are a little less,” Cannon said, claiming “when they were sent to the mountains of Caucasus. ...The sun then started to deteriorate them, so then they’re acting out of fear, they’re acting out of low self-esteem, they’re acting out of a deficiency." He also went on to say even more ridiculous things, such as how blacks were the true Hebrews, the people of God, and that the Jews were imposters. First of all, imagine if a high profile white person said these things... Anyways, ViacomCBS, who employs him, asked him to apologize (crazy they even gave him a chance to keep his job...), but he refused, so they fired him If you go to twitter and search by trending, "Nick Cannon" used to be there and had >700k mentions the last time I checked, which is a very large number. Other trending topics will commonly have thousands or tens of thousands. We all know it's rigged and they hide stuff. I was going through the top tweets and was pretty shocked at what I saw. There were tons of tweets from the black community supporting Nick Cannon, including other high profile individuals from the black community, such as NBA and NFL athletes, celebrities, and so on. A lot of regular users were going on about how they need to start rioting and looting some more and get rid of white people once and for all, and very many stated that they agree with Nick Cannon. Go look for yourselves. Search his name and go through the tweets. A few prominent members of the black community, such as 50cent, stood up to Nick Cannon, and people were going crazy on his twitter calling him a traitor and so his profile is locked and protected now: https://twitter.com/50cent Although the comments by Nick Cannon and his firing were covered by the news, this insanity that was exploding on twitter throughout the day largely wasn't. I would say it was reaching a new peak around the time the high-profile accounts were 'hacked'. My only guess is this was used as a measure to divert attention away from the other topic, which goes against the narrative being pushed on us day after day after day. You know the one.
Everyone who got scammed in the recent "Twitter-Bitcoin Hack" absolutely deserved it
This just proves that these people have had no idea what a cryptocurrency is and had no place in owning any. Would they have given away any USD if a scammer asked them for that? Of course not! So why give away crypto? Because they are idiots who think its some kind of "internet points", akin to reddit karma, that will make them rich or famous or whatever, without understanding THAT IT'S MONEY. Their bitcoins are in better hands now.
